Nowitzki Passes Olajuwon on All-Time Scoring List



No international player has scored more points in the NBA than Dirk Nowitzki.

Nowitzki, the native of Wurzburg, Germany, and face of the Dallas Mavericks franchise, moved past Nigerian-born Hakeem Olajuwon into ninth place on the NBA’s all-time scoring list Tuesday night.

Dirk Nowitzki knocked down a midrange jumper with 8:56 left Tuesday against the Kings to pass Hakeem Olajuwon in career scoring.

“It’s an honor,” said Nowitzki, who knocked down a midrange jumper with 8:56 remaining in the game to pass Olajuwon. “To do it at home, it was even more special. Getting a standing ovation, it was great.
